Progress.

Progress is being made in the closets.  I know that you have been on the edge of your seat waiting for another closet post...

And now I present....


...THE LINEN CLOSET!!!

Here's a before picture, in case you've forgotten...

  
After...


Here's what I did...

I listened to Chris. 

No, seriously.  I did.  He reminded me that in our old house - the t-tiny one with no linen closet at all - we kept the sheets for each bed in an under the bed storage bin under said bed, and that he liked it so much better that way.  Also in that house with no linen closet we kept the towels under the bathroom sink.  Huh.  Go figure.  And its even easier to do that in this house because both of the upstairs bathrooms have double sinks.  Which means double the space.

So, the sheets are now in order by the bed they belong on - under said bed in a container.  And we already had the containers.  Score.  Then, I paid attention to the comments and liked what Erica had to say about the baskets.  Genius.  And the Ho Lo (that would be the Hobby Lobby in CB terms) had baskets on sale last week, so I bought some.  A small one for wash clothes, and then 2 bigger sized ones - one for hand towels and one for pillow cases (because those are interchangeable on the beds in our house).  In case you were wondering, I paid less than $20 for all three baskets.  Holla. 

We also have our extra blankets, pillows and beach towels in there. 

And I packed up a big bag of stuff for Goodwill. 

Yay!  One closet down, 800 billion more to go!
